I have been recently invited to serve as Guest Editor for a Special Issue of the journal Nutrients on the subject of “Nutritional Status, Nutritional Habits and Their Underlying Mechanisms on Neurodegenerative Diseases". It is my pleasure to invite you to submit an invited feature article on this topic. The article may be either a full paper or a communication based on your own research in this area, or may be a focused review article on some aspect of the subject.
The relationships between nutrition and neurodegenerative diseases are highly complex and should benefit from a better characterization of nutritional habits, from a long-term assessment of nutritional exposure in the silent prodromal phase of diseases, from innovative approaches (exploratory approaches) to assess nutritional exposure, from an overview of changes of nutritional status over time, but also, from research on early biomarkers of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer and Parkinson diseases, and from a better understanding of underlying mechanisms linking nutrition and neurodegenerative diseases.
A better understanding of these complex associations would help to design efficient nutritional interventions, and public health recommendations, to definitively help delay the onset of neurodegenerative diseases in our aging world.
